Firefly Guesthouses in the Woods

View all 13 Photos

These two-story guesthouses by Totan Kuzembaev Architecture Studio can be found in the forests outside of Moscow. Each building centers around a porch that’s partially screen in by a metal frame with translucent panels of blue, yellow, and green. While the getaway homes are otherwise plainly built on a concrete foundation and clad with timber, the panels bring color and a sense of surrealism to the landscape.
